After the steaming heat of Florida’s swamps, you can cool off wintering “down under” in earthquake- devastated Christchurch, on the South Island of New Zealand. Repairs and reconstruction are still the order of the day as the second-largest city in the country rebuilds. After Boot Camp training you fly across the United States to Los Angeles, and continue across the Pacific Ocean, the Equator and the International Date Line, to Aotearoa (the Maori name for New Zealand), the “Land of the Long White Cloud”.
After disembarking in Auckland and going through customs, a domestic flight will take you still further south to Christchurch. The effects of the earthquakes are still everywhere! Here you will not only be helping with rebuilding this beautiful English city, but also sharing Jesus and His love with people who know what it is to have their daily lives totally disrupted and who need to know someone still cares. Come prepared to do anything, as there is plenty of work to do.
Fellowship will be enjoyed with the multicultural spectrum of believers and you may get to experience some of the Maori background and history of the area. While in Christchurch you will pay a visit to the Antarctic Centre, which is the next best thing to touring the world’s most inaccessible continent.
After blessing a needy community with some ‘real dinkum’ (practical help), you’ll go home having made lasting friends with a new understanding of what a kiwi really is!
